Taiwanese company Billion Electric has launched an IoT gateway that connects various sensors and devices through Zigbee, Ethernet, RS485 and powerline communications.
 
Following the previously launched M100, the SG6300NZL gateway provides a flexible development platform through an API for system integrators and software partners to use and create applications.
 
The all-in-one IoT gateway can automatically connect front-end device API information and transfer the data to a customer-defined central management platform in a diversity of communications protocols, allowing users to overview and analyse various data on streams.
 
Ranging from smart meter, power plug, intelligent switch, IHD, thermostat to environmental sensors, it is said to unlock the correlation between two sides of system integration and create a community for all IoT devices.
 
A wireless AP provides internet service and acts as a wireless bridge that can be attached to any existing wireless gateway. With its dual-WAN design, internet access via broadband and DSL, and back up through 3G and 4G networks, it can extend the wireless coverage while reducing the wiring costs to keep users always connected.
 
“M2M connectivity can visualise and convert the operations into valuable data, where every business activity can be effectively monitored and improved with optimal efficiency,” said Jason Liao, product marketing manager of Billion. “By leveraging Billion M2M and IoT gateways, our clients can abstract information and connect to any central management system to generate enriching business models for different vertical markets.”
 
Designed for PoS, ATMs, kiosks, and oil and gas scada settings, the M100 is a compact industrial M2M router that supports two Gigabit Ethernet interfaces, which can be configured as WAN or LAN, and RS232 serial ports, providing fallback and failover functionality by featuring both Gigabit Ethernet WAN port and 3G and 4G wireless interfaces to prevent network failure. The M100 supports IPSec, PPTP, L2TP, GRE and Open VPN protocols, allowing users to create up to 16 VPN tunnels for data encryption and safe transmission.
